Nose: This is young and spirit driven. At first there’s a mix of a very young, slightly peaty distillate and a thin vanilla and red berry fruitiness. There’s a maltiness as well and it has rather sharp edges of lemon and green apples. The peatiness is coming through as wet and herbal. This is a hard to judge nose. It feels like a well made spirit, but way too young to be a good neat pour.
Mouth: It starts out with a malty and vanilla sweet base with a lemon sharpness in the background and a spirity top note. It feels a bit watery overall and lacks body. The flavours found are nice though. It’s a mixed fruitiness with no perticular accent note. Maybe apples or pears. The peat is milder than on the nose and gives a nice background noise. It still feels really well made but as on the nose, it’s way too young which gives it an off-note which isn’t the greatest. There seem to be potential though.
Finish: A mild chili spicyness spreads out over the palate even to it has low ABV. The oakiness clings to the sides of the mouth and gives the fruitiness room to shine in the center of the palate. There’s not much of flavour transitions and changes. It’s a straight forward array of flavours. It becomes fruitier the further down the line it comes and as the oakiness grows the sort of spel together to create a nice finish. The peat has sort of disappeared throughout the finish. This is not the greatest whisky, but it’s a very good first attempt which feels like a good foundation to build on.
This whiskey was aged in a mix of ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks for an undisclosed amount of time. It’s unchillfiltered and has natural colour.
